ECORP’s architectural historians focus primarily on evaluating the historical significance of buildings and structures. In addition to evaluating historic-period resources for the National Register of Historic Places and California Register of Historical Resources, ECORP has recently launched several exciting new projects outside the realm of a typical building evaluation.
We are currently developing content and themes, gathering and preparing images, and designing educational interpretive panels, which will be displayed along walking trails in Lincoln, California. These interpretive panels will provide educational information to the public regarding local historical figures and themes, such as J. Parker Whitney, the Placer Citrus Colony, local Native Americans, and the Twelve Bridges community.
ECORP is preparing Historic American Landscape Survey (HALS) documentation, which includes large format black and white photographs, drawings, and historical research for a terraced landscape of historic orange groves also located in Lincoln. The HALS documentation will eventually be sent to Washington, D.C. and archived permanently at the Library of Congress.
We have started work on several high-profile building evaluation projects, including an updated evaluation of the California State Building within the San Francisco Civic Center Historic District. In addition, ECORP is preparing to evaluate the historical significance of the California State Resources Building in downtown Sacramento, which will include an assessment of eligibility for the National Register, California Register, and consideration as a California Historical Landmark.
These projects are only a few of the many exciting architectural history-focused efforts that will take us into and through 2014! Contact Jeremy Adams for more information at (916) 782-9100.
